Starting a no-filter/heater/light walstad

devsi

So I found this small vase and decided to use it to experiment with a no-filter, no-heater, no-light walstad tank.

The soil I used is a mixture of John Innes 3 and aquatic compost with a (roughly) 50:50 ratio.

It is capped off with a very thin layer of play sand. I’ll be honest when starting a new tank, I don’t usually wash it as I let the filter take care of it during cycling, but as there is no filter I did wash it.

Then I chucked in the water, some prime and some plants.

I have no plans for any livestock, but maybe I’ll add a shrimp or two in a month if everything goes well.

At this point, I have no idea if it’ll work or not.

Forgot to attach the picture….
